SPRING TERM 2020

Well what a strange start to the year…another Lockdown! We are happy to have Nursery open and we hope that all our families that have decided to stay at home are ok.

We want you to know that we are here for you if you need us…

Please keep in touch with us via Tapestry, and stay safe.

 

Shape hunting

We have been thinking really carefully about the shapes square, triangle and circle. Here we are finding them around us. The children at home showed us some fabulous examples too..

 

Ice cream sales!

The children have absolutely loved selling ice creams during the cold weather over the last few weeks!

 

Dedicated chicken helpers

The Nursery children have been absolute superstars with our chickens. They love collecting the eggs, filling the feeders, cleaning out the water containers and just spending time with their well-loved pets.

 

 

 

Snow much fun!

We certainly embraced the snowy weather at Nursery!

 

 

AUTUMN TERM 2020

The returning Nursery children have settled well after having a long time away from school. They have settled back into routines and have loved seeing old friends and playing together. We have welcomed lots of new children into Nursery and the transition so far has been very positive. Thank you families for your support as we get used to the new way of Nursery life during these strange times.

Dinosaurs

In the first few weeks of Nursery the children have shown us their fascination of dinosaurs by creating a large dinosaur in the painting area, dinosaur hunting and chasing outside, using the large small world dinosaurs in the indoor and outdoor areas and creating dinosaur footprints with stampers that we made from apple that had fallen from the trees in our garden.

Children in Need day 

The Children enjoyed wearing Children in Need clothing to school and completing lots of fun activities, including dot to dots, colouring pages and practising their cutting skills by cutting circles to decorate Pudsey with.  The children enjoyed watching the ‘Duck Races’ and cheered for our winners.

Chickens 

Egg-citing news! Our pet chickens arrived from the ‘Fresh Start for Hens’ charity this weekend.
They have been rescued as they are 18 months old and the farm that they were laying eggs for has finished with them…so we have given them a chance of a longer and happy life.
We will be taking it in turns in Nursery to care for the chickens: feeding them, changing their water and picking up their poo!
We have 7 chickens and are busy thinking of names for them all.

Learning to mix paint

Over the last few weeks the children have enjoyed exploring the paint area, learning how to mix paints to create different colours. They have followed the instructions well and used the tricky pumps to squirt out little amounts of different colours that they wish to mix.

Owl Babies 

After half term we began reading the story ‘Owl Babies’. The children have enjoyed listening to the story, learning facts about owls, talking about how Sarah, Percy and Bill feel, making owl masks and retelling the story in our role play area using the puppets and props. We are looking forward to real owls visiting us in school soon …

Owl Visit by SMJ Falconry

Rhiannon brought 4 owls to visit us: Molly the Tawny Owl, JD the Barn Owl, Bubbles and Midge. We loved finding out about what they eat and how they live. We all got a turn to hold an owl and we even got to see one fly!

 

We then created our own Owl Art by using the well known ‘Dab-a-tissue’ technique! We hope that you have enjoyed seeing them in our window.

Mark-Making Skills

We have been practising our mark-making skills by drawing on large paper together…look at our ‘duck fingers’!

Christmas Party

We had a super time dancing, eating and playing games at our party! And we loved having a visit from a very special visitor…

It was so much fun and the children behaved amazingly – well done everyone.

You have been SUPERSTARS this term and we are so proud of you.
